What is the Canonsburg "O" Club?

A chapter of the Fellowship of Orthodox Christians in America (FOCA), the Canonsburg “O” Club sponsors fellowship activities for Orthodox Christians. It serves the Church on local, regional, and national levels.

The Fellowship provides a variety of spiritual, educational, social and athletic activities, as well as a dedication to important service projects. All are welcome to join. Canonsburg has both “senior” and “junior” chapters. The junior chapter is open for those from ten to eighteen years of age. The senior chapter is open to those eighteen and over. The FOCA provides fellowship opportunities for Orthodox Christians of all ages. The FOCA national convention is held Labor Day weekend, and also sponsors national sports tournaments in bowling, basketball and golf.

Pentecost Luncheon

Pentecost - 06/19/09

The Canonsburg “O” Club sponsored a fundraising event, a boxed luncheon, on Pentecost this year.  Green silk leis were distributed to parishioners as they entered church for “Green Sunday”.   Following Liturgy, a picnic-box lunch with hot dogs and hamburgers, chips, baked beans and brownies.  Our two “Grill-Masters” were “O” Club member Bob Schenken and parish President, Kip Yarosh.   Parishioners enjoyed their lunches on the church lawn, either at tables or on the lawn on blankets.  It was a bright, sunny day with the church beautifully decorated with green leaves everywhere.   Fellowship was enjoyed by all.  A gift basket was raffled off and was won by one of our Sunday School  teachers, Marcie Killmeyer.  Members of the “O” Club donated the food, which gave as a good profit.  All members helped make this event a success, under the supervision of co-chairs Kyra Schenken and Mat. Myra Oleynik.  Thanks go out to all of the parishioners who supported this event.
